Lead singer Eddie Levert says songs that preach universal love like I Love Music and their other big hit, Love Train, could only be written in America because, as he puts it, Everybody comes here to live the American dream.
Newest member Eric Nolan Grant agrees, figuring that no other country is richer, more generous and more open to opportunity than the U.S.
Now the group is putting their patriotism where their mouth is by performing at A Capitol Fourth, the July 4 concert in Washington, D.C.
The band will perform Love Train, and I Love Music and is considering showing the other side of the American dream by singing The Apprentice theme For The Love Of Money.
Once the OJays finish celebrating Americas past they will start work on a TV special that may feature performances by Gerald Levert, Stevie Wonder and, possibly, Donald Trump.
